PRAYING THROUGH THE TROUBLING TIMES
Well, what I am about to share with you is really a little graphic and somewhat "gross", but if you hang with me, you will see how the power of Christ was up to working in my home last night! Hold on to your seat, and I hope you are not eating anything right now! LOL!
Yesterday started as any other homeschool co-op day. We had a ton of fun...a little crazy...but always a blessing for us. As I was about to leave...and calling my little one to the car, I noticed a certain look of uneasiness upon my little 5 year old's face. I asked him what was wrong and he began spilling the beans.
He had tried to go potty-BM-during a bathroom break. However, he said his "little poops" were too big. Now, he has always had an issue with constipation, but not during this recent week, as he is on constant medication for such problems. So, I was very surprised at this revelation. He looked so forlorn and really sad. I could tell he was in pain and literally feeling sick from this dilemma.
So, I took him into one of the local fast food restaurants for another try at the "hard" situation. He revealed to me that when he had tried to potty before at co-op, he had blood on the toilet paper. This scared the beegeebeezzz out of me! So, I quickly finished my errands for the day and dropped by Walmart for some prune juice, spinach, and probiotics! I gave him a quick dose of a pediatric laxative as well.
All of these combined worked on the new stool. However, that big old hard thing was still lodged inside of my baby. He was scared to pieces to go poop. He wouldn't eat dinner nor drink anything. I was seriously contemplating taking him to the E.R., but then that "STILL SMALL VOICE" was heard THUNDERING in my ear.....
It was whispering as loudly as any Bowing Airliner...."GIRL, I GOT THIS. DON'T YOU KNOW I AM MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY NURSE OR DOCTOR? DON'T YOU KNOW THAT I CREATED YOUR LITTLE ONE. DON'T YOU KNOW THAT I KNOW YOU ARE AFRAID FOR HIM. DON'T YOU KNOW THAT I KNOW HE IS AFRAID. TRUST ME. HAVE FAITH IN MY POWER. PUT YOUR PRAYERS INTO ACTION THROUGH FAITH."
Wow! It was certainly clear! God had THIS!!!! So, I turned off the internet...and my search of "what to do for severe impaction of bowels" and I waltzed into the bedroom to wake up my hubby. During this time, it was as if a light bulb had literally turned on brightly into my eyes. I was going to do something that I would have NEVER thought to do--especially to my baby. I woke my little sleeping baby boy up, and gave him an enema...YUCK!
Within two tries....and just a little bit of concern for God showing up....He pushed out that obstruction! Of course it was a scared yet elated feeling of relief that came across his tear-streamed tiny face, but he did it...NO GOD DID IT! God enabled my faith to be placed into His "provision" and GRAND "medical expertise"! I FIRMLY believe that!
I quickly called my mother, who told me she had JUST BEEN PRAYING for my little one. Then, I checked my phone make sure my alarm was set, and I saw that my precious Sister had been praying for him as well!
GOD IS AWESOME! My friends, our God REALLY is just THAT powerful! He REALLY does hear and answer prayers....even though it may not be in our time...He REALLY does SPEAK to us. We just have to hear Him!
My desire for you today is that NO MATTER WHAT IS TROUBLING YOU...sickness, heartbreak, financial worries, or whatever....place your FAITH in that GOD WILL ALWAYS WORK IT OUT! HE ALWAYS HAS YOUR HEART IN HIS HANDS. He LOVES you!
...And thank you for sticking with reading this "messy" post! LOL
